Can you give me direction?

Head west until you see the ocean. ;)
These are cold water animals unless you keep a cold water tank (temp at 70 max.!) you should skip bringing anything home & just enjoy them in their natural envirinment.

I guess eastbound is a much longer process!:rollface:

No. I don't plan to take these animals home. I am planning to bring my kids over.

Neat pics! I always like tidepools.

In the future, though, please don't pick up or move the animals, or let kids do it. It can literally mean their death. There are lots of small aquariums (and big aquariums) that have tidepool petting areas, where the animals are safe from getting killed by the next wave or a predator because they lost their protection from being latched down on their rocks.

Gently touching them while they are in place is usually okay for the animals, though.

UCSB has a nice area with touch tanks that's open on the weekends as well. It's called " The R.E.E.F." and is geared towards our youth. ;)

I know Long Beach has a big touch pool area, and I think Cabrillo does, too. It's a popular feature! I think the hard part is keeping the adults away long enough for the kids to get a turn. ;)

I grew up in the tidepools in south Laguna.

I haven't been back to the tide pools since moving out of Laguna in the early 90s.

From Cerritos? Take the 91 to the 5 south. Take the 5 south to the 55 south. Take that to the 73 south. Exit Mac Aurthur (it is before the toll) That exit will take you southbound on Mac Aurthur.

Take MacAurthur until it dead ends at PCH turn left (south). Take PCh a few miles until you reach Crytal Cove State Park. Turn right into the lot. Tidepools there are quite nice.

Another nice place is Little Corona in Corona Del Mar. Same direction to Crystal cove except after you turn on MacAurthur you are going o turn right on to Poppy.Poppy dead ends at Ocean where there is a big ramp that you walk to down to the ocean.

I'm at these places twice a week for work. Have seen many a cool things. Favorite was a giant starfish and an octopus. The dolphins were pretty cool though. Go at low tide, it is so worth the wait to go at a good low tide.
